HANS OLSEN

Hans Olsen’s (1919-1992) remarkable designs from the 1950s are vivid examples of the beautiful diversity of Danish Modernism. This Danish architect and industrial designer took on the classic virtues of the Academy of Fine Arts and the great master, Kaare Klint, but opted for a more playful and experimental approach to furniture design. Hans Olsen challenged contemporary production methods and much of his inspiration came from the opportunities offered by moulding wood.

KNUD FÆRCH

Even when he was very young, when he joined his father in his carpentry workshop and furniture shop, the scent of wood and the effects of aesthetics made an impression on Knud Færch(1924-1992). The fascination led Knud Færch to study interior design and a landmark meeting with Finn Juhl. The Danish architect taught furniture design and inspired Knud Færch to forge his own flourishing career as a furniture designer in the 1950s and 1960s.
